My understanding, as noted by numerous authors, is that Shoghi Effendi chose the style he did because it most adequately captured the beauty and style of the original Arabic. Incidentally, some of the passages of Baha'u'llah are fairly straightforward and the English is simple. This is not a translation issue, just that Baha'u'llah expressed it differently.
